There is so much information on just about everything out there, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed.
Paraphrasing what Napoleon Hill said in his great book, Think and Grow Rich: It is not knowledge that creates wealth, it is the application of knowledge: the things you actually do with that knowledge.
That is why you have all those wonderful buildings with huge libraries & reams of research, filled with incredibly knowledgeable academics. Have you noticed people don’t get paid based on the amount of knowledge they possess, but for what they actually DO with what they have?
Knowledge for its own sake may get you a job, but is unlikely to make you wealthy. Dr Phil is probably not the best psychologist in the world, but he is one of the best paid and wealthiest – because he has APPLIED his knowledge and is well paid for doing that.
With just about anything you want available at your fingertips from a computer search, you can see why it is of no real benefit to pay a premium to anyone for it UNLESS they deliver something beyond that.
With that in mind, please don’t fall into the trap of just reading or attending courses/events and calls just to learn some more about whatever it is that interests you. There are so many things out there tempting you into thinking that once you know all about xyz, the money will flow, as you are now an expert. Not so fast! I’m a life long learner, but more important than just learning is what I do with what I have learned. Expertise comes from action and application of what you have learned.
The best bang for your buck when it comes to learning is to have a solution focused approach, the object being to be able to take action with what you learn.
